Republicans Should Not Have Delayed the Kavanaugh Vote

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The only plan Republicans seem to have had during Thursday's hearing was not to offend anyone by asking questions that were, you know, about the subject matter of the hearing that the whole country was watching. A witness can seem awfully credible if she’s not asked about the incredible aspects of her story. And — voila! — the Democrats have their next delay and can proclaim that Senate Republicans found the allegations so credible that President Trump had to call in the FBI to investigate. Nice job.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: All hail the new breed of fiercely combative and fighting Republicans

It’s hard to predict how the Kavanaugh saga ends but America’s political class received a severe jolt last week. Conservatives searched long and hard for someone other than Trump to stand up to the ugly left – and thanks to a normally calm judge and a reformed RINO senator, we finally got it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh is right; we now have good reason to fear for the future

If Kavanaugh goes down Trump’s strategy is still the same – send forward qualified originalist conservatives and let the Democrats keep disemboweling themselves ahead of the 2020 election. Regardless, the country will never be the same after this is all over – is it the end or a new beginning?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ sick stalking of Kavanaugh disqualifies them from humanity

Whether or not Kavanaugh’s teen history truly constitutes a “disqualifying event” Democrats and the media will treat it that way regardless. Decency and fairness are in short supply these days – if you’re Ted Cruz you can’t even go to a restaurant without being harassed. Is it sick? You decide.

My Explosive Revelation for Thursday

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Republicans who are allowing this travesty to continue have no idea whatsoever how it will end. They have allowed it to go on to the point where they are now in danger of completely losing control of the Kavanaugh hearings. We cannot say how many people can come forward with lurid stories, but we can say that this late in the game the Democrats will claim everyone should get a hearing. No matter how many questions they cannot answer. Or how many questions make them uncomfortable. Or how many questions make them vaguely nauseous.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans must hang together now or they’ll hang separately later

The best solutions to problems aren’t always the ones that cost the most money, something Washington politicians have a hard time realizing. Republicans would accomplish a lot more if they’d cast off their phony “bipartisan” appearances and act more like Democrats…and hang together.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ second verse same as the first – why the Kavanaugh sliming?

Should Republican senators fail to pass Kavanaugh through the system and confirm him there will be consequences for the GOP as a whole. Voters want leaders who stand up for what’s right, not elected cowards who shiver at rumors and scurrilous gossip. Will the truth prevail here?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Sleazy Dems and hapless R’s give America worst case of déjà vu ever

For all those tired of déjà vu in American government it’s time to band together to force changes. The freak show surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has tarnished the reputations of our political institutions. Isn’t it time to say we’re not going to sit by and take it any longer?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If politics were fantasy football, Democrats would all be benchwarmers

President Trump is fortunate to have a strong “bench” full of Republican political players he can call on in times of need. The GOP “fantasy team” includes not only a dream starting lineup but also capable backups who contribute. The Democrats? They’re all hopeless benchwarmers.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrat lynch mob shows we have a government of fools, not laws

America is on fire because of Democrats’ zeal to trash the reputations of good people just to preserve judge-made “rights” like abortion. The United States was supposed to be a government of laws, not fools. That’s impossible to accomplish in today’s unhinged political environment.

I Call BS On Tip O’Neill's Claim 'All Politics Is Local'

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What Tip O’Neill really meant was that focusing on local issues is what wins elections for Democrats, because they can’t campaign on their state and national agendas of raising taxes, opening the borders, enabling sanctuary cities, giving benefits to illegal aliens, cutting national defense and nationalizing health care and anything else they can get their hands on.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why Democrats don’t mind saying the ‘s-word’ in polite company

The ordeal Democrats are forcing Judge Brett Kavanaugh to endure reveals the utterly soulless character of today’s political opposition. When there’s a party openly advocating socialism over adherence to the Constitution only bad things happen. We’re all witnessing it right now.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In today’s politics, ‘bipartisanship’ is for sadly-naïve wusses

You can’t blame dreamers for believing it’s still possible for Democrats and Republicans to work together to solve America’s pressing problems, but the immature antics of one party indicates otherwise. Politics isn’t exactly a collegial undertaking any longer – it’s more like Bloodsport.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What skeleton will desperate Dems dig up next to stop Kavanaugh?

Time will tell whether anything comes from Democrats’ latest desperate attempt to defeat Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. Republicans have it within their power to confirm him before the Supreme Court term begins next month; will they ignore the noise and just get it done?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Whatever happened to good old fashioned American cultural normalcy?

America’s culture war will rage on as long as there are liberals supplying ammunition for both sides’ rhetorical weapons. Caught in the middle are average citizens who see the melee and wonder what happened to the good ‘ol days when men were men and women loved them for it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The transitive property explains Dems’ covert self-sabotage mission

Trump stands up for the flag and the “forgotten Americans” in regions of the country the ruling elites stopped thinking about long ago. There’s never any question which “team” the president roots for; it’s the one with hands over their hearts and tears of love in their eyes.

Trump and Republicans must do this or the left may just get the ‘blue wave’ they are hoping for

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

Republicans must move from district-by-district attrition to a national message – and do something unexpected. Republicans need a national brand campaign, so Americans actually hear that there are more jobs than unemployed, we have the lowest level of African-American unemployment recorded, the average American family will have $2,000 more in their budgets, retirement savings have increased, wages have gone up, etc.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment media is ringmaster to the American political ‘circus’

The “circus” atmosphere engulfing American politics is the result of a political establishment desperate to resist all forms of change and the man who’s altering the rules in Washington. To the elites, losing power means surrendering their livelihoods – they won’t go down without a fight.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 9/11 cost us more than buildings and lives – it stole our national soul

Much has changed since 9/11/01, not the least of which is a loss of patriotism and devotion to the founding principles of the United States. Much of the deterioration is due to political correctness and our elected leaders’ lack of willingness to fight diligently for truth. Will we ever get it back?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the sad shaming of Kavanaugh ignite fury in the GOP grassroots?

Americans aren’t stupid. Good people recognize what’s going on in Washington and the states – a coordinated effort to thwart President Trump, Brett Kavanaugh and those who would Make America Great Again. Now is the time for the conservative grassroots to let itself be heard.
